Acturis' revamp of its Broker Platform software has been welcomed by brokers preparing for FSA regulation.

The new version has been revamped to include a task management system, which enables users to create process paths for different classes of business.

The system also incorporates a new 'office integration' tool, which enables users to link accounting and administration functions together.

Smart & Cook managing director Paul Meehan said: "Yet again Acturis has delivered a promised system advancement, to deadline and specification. Although Release 2 is only a few weeks old, my team are already enjoying and commenting on the improvement."

Co-chief executive at Acturis Theo Duchen said: "This new Release is the embodiment of the vision we have had for the past two and a half years.

"The system will make Acturis brokers far more efficient and compliant. Coupled with the work we have already done on insurer integration for commercial and personal lines, makes Acturis the market leader in terms of functionality for commercial and scheme-orientated brokers and networks."
